First, I have some "house style" questions: where will the document
sit in our web space? What pages will point _to_ it? Is
it world-readable, or member-only? What
"navigation bar" links will it have at the top? Will it bear
the W3C logo? Is there an icon for this activity area?

I think the link to 
http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/Disabilities should use the title
of the page, not the URL, as its label.

Then, about the content: you refer to "the alt tag." Is that
a reference to the alt attribute of the IMG element in HTML?
I have heard of an "alt tag" proposal from Netscape (though
I have never seen it) and think the way it's phrased in
the document is ambiguous.

Also, it says:

|Finalize work on OBJECT tag
|     (real ALT content, client side image map). 

The OBJECT tag (sic -- should be elemnt) _has_ real ALT content.
This is the major improvement over the <IMG> tag. Could you
either clarify this or strike it?

A comment... Wow:

  3.A Working group on Guidelines and Style Guide (for HTML and
     browsing/authoring tools). 
  4.A Working group on Test and Certification software. 

so... we're finally going to get this done, huh? Yeah!

The "SGML consortium" has the wrong label and the wrong address:
the label should be "SGML Open" and the address should be
http://www.sgmlopen.org/
